Because we’re talking so much about barbecue, here are a few pictures of The Golden Rule in Irondale, Alabama. I took these back in December, before I started the blog (but while it was definitely jostling in the back of my mind).
Extra pork plate, sliced, half and half. This means that it is essentially a double order of pork (see the plate on the right? Yeah.), sliced and not chopped, half from the inside (tender and delicious) and the outside (a little burnt and delicious). The fries and the coleslaw? The fries are awesome, crispy and skin-on. The coleslaw is vinegar-based, but not “hot slaw” as I know it.
